Tom Hardy's Bane will not have origin story included in The Dark Knight Rises Blu-ray release
Even though THE DARK KNIGHT RISES has yet to get an official Blu-ray release date, there were rumors spreading around earlier that there was going to be an Extended Director’s Cut heading to Blu-ray next summer that featured an extra 30 minutes of footage which may have included Bane’s (Tom Hardy) origin. Sadly, that rumor was false as was confirmed director Christopher Nolan and other close sources. Nolan stated in an interview earlier this year, “I tend to try and weed things out on paper because it’s crazy expensive to shoot things that aren’t going to be in the film. It also takes up a lot of time and energy. Pretty much with all my films, there are very few deleted scenes, which always disappoints the DVD crowd.” For fans of Christopher Nolan this isn’t really any surprise since none of his films to-date have had any deleted scenes of extended cuts. It’s disappointing, but not something we should have expected anyway.
As mentioned before, there are still no details about the Blu-ray release of THE DARK KNIGHT RISES, but we’ll be sure to keep you posted when news surfaces.
THE DARK KNIGHT RISES is the third and final Batman film from director Christopher Nolan and stars: Christian Bale, Tom Hardy, Anne Hathaway, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Gary Oldman, Michael Caine and Morgan Freeman. (Playlist)
